Spaghetti Western Trivia ~ Saint Sergio

Santa Maria Church in Turrillas, Spain was used for the parable scene in “For a Few Dollars More”. The scene was in complete disrepair and abandoned. Sergio Leone was allowed to use the church for the interior scenes and in return paid the parish enough money for them to completely repair the building and reopen it. Since then Leone has been known to the locals and the parishioners of Santa Maria as Saint Sergio.
